dobos-torte

Chocolate buttercream filling and a sticky caramel coating are just two of the many reasons you’ll fall in love with Hungary’s Dobos Torte. (via Juls’ Kitchen)

turkish-pudding

Supangle is Turkey’s version of chocolate pudding. The bonus layer of cake or cookie at the bottom is just Supangle showing off! (via Almost Turkish)

nanaimo-bar

Oh, Canada! One Nanaimo Bar contains graham cracker crumbs, coconut flakes, chopped walnuts, custard, and so much chocolate. Talk about a treat that packs a punch! (via Baked Bree)

flan

Not all Pudim, or Brazilian Flan, is created equal, but all are delicious. Obrigada, Brazil! (via The Kitchn)

Croquembouche

Thank you, France, for Croquembouche. These caramel-covered cream puffs will transport you to summertime in Paris in just one bite. (via Saveur)

Impressive and easy-to-make, Sopapillas, are the perfect Mexico-inspired dessert. (via Blue Bonnets and Brownies)

It doesn’t get much more American than good ol’ Apple Pie! We couldn’t leave our country’s classic off the list. (via The Merry Gourmet)

Lamingtons, sweet, soft sponges dipped in milk chocolate and rolled in coconut, are no longer just for Australians! (via Perks of Being a Foodie)

No matter your heritage, you’ll enjoy Grandma’s Apple Strudel by way of Germany. (via Cooking for Seven)

If pumpkin pie is the only pumpkin dessert you know, make your way to Korea for Hobak Hotteok. These stuffed pumpkin pancakes are chewy, gooey, and nutty. Feel free to have them for breakfast! (via Korean Bapsang)

Remember Pudim, the Brazilian flan? South African Melktert is like flan but with flour. Dig in!  (via What’s Gaby Cooking)

Drenched in and oozing cardamom-spiced syrup, Gulab Jamun will have you experiencing nirvana. (via The Tiffin Box)

Dear Poland: We love Kolaczki! It reminds us of rugelach. (via Joe Pastry)

mochi

Who doesn’t love a Mochi topping on their fro-yo? Now you can make it yourself! (via Krissy’s Creations)
